These days, shooting on film is expensive, and it continues to get more expensive. If you use an instant camera, like Polaroid it costs a lot to snap pics. $19 for just eight shots was too much for Tim Alex Jacobs, so he hacked an old Polaroid camera to print out images on cheap thermal paper, the same kind that is used in cash registers to print out your receipt.
